“How does a capitalist text?”/“BY YELLING.”

A “capitalist” is sometimes just a person who likes to write in all capital letters. “All caps” is regarded online as shouting or yelling.
A joke was posted on Reddit—3amjokes on January 13, 2018:
Q: How does a capitalist text?

Wikipedia: All caps
In typography, all caps (short for “all capitals”) refers to text or a font in which all letters are capital letters. “All caps” may be used for emphasis (for a word or phrase). They are commonly seen in the titles on book covers, in advertisements and in newspaper headlines. Short strings of words in capital letters appear bolder and “louder” than mixed case, and this is sometimes referred to as “shouting”. All caps can also be used to indicate that a given word is an acronym.
